A complete disappointment. Found on-tap at Capone's in Norristown PA.
Appearance: I is served looking like a beautiful stout Dark almost black with a frothy dark tan head and decent lacing
Smell: It has a great chocolate cocoa aroma, lactic and milky and boldly bitter chocolate. Very enticing aroma.
Taste: The Aroma is enticing but the artificial sweetness and chocolate in the mouth is a real disappointment. Yes it is chocolaty and it is almost roasty but it lacks the bitter dryness needed in a porter. It is sweet like a milk stout but laking the complex body. All - in all I think it is mostly a chocolate mess.
Mouthfeel: It is just a bit too sticky sweet all around. The mouthfeel is medium in body but lacks the crisp dry finish of a good porter. I found it a bit cloying.
Drinkability: Finishing the pint was a challenge. It just didn't work for me.
Hope this is helpful.
Serving type: on-tap
